Late/Absence Procedures

Attendance Leaflet

Late Procedures


The school gates open at 8:40am each morning, and children are due to arrive in school by 8:50am, and the gates are locked at 8:55am.


Any child arriving after 8:55am will need to go to Reception to sign in.


If a child arrives after the registers are closed at 9:05am, they will be marked as ‘late after registration’. This will count as an unauthorised absence.

Absence Procedures


If your child is absent from school due to illness, please telephone the school by 10:00am, and choose option 1 to leave a message to report your child absent, and the reason for the absence.

Family Holidays


Holiday authorisation is at the discretion of the school Governors, and no holiday in term time will be authorised by the Governors of Willesborough Junior School.


Requests for leave of absence will only be considered in exceptional circumstances and need to be sanctioned by the Governors. A letter of explanation should be addressed to the Headteacher who will then pass it on to the Chair of Governors for consideration.



Any child whose attendance is below 90% will be offered a meeting at the school with our Family Liaison Officer to discuss any ways in which we can help improve your child's attendance. This is to try and give you any support you and your child might need.
